9781531846589: Charlie Joe Jackson's Guide to Not Growing Up

As graduation day approaches, Charlie Joe is starting to realize being a kid isn’t so bad after all, in this hilarious, final installment of the Charlie Joe Jackson series.

Yes! Graduation day is finally here! Charlie Joe has been waiting for this moment his entire middle school career. This might even be the best day of his life. No more teachers! No more books! Just make it through the ceremony and he’s free. But suddenly things around him are starting to change. Words like responsibility and college prep keep popping out of his friend’s mouths. What happened to words like fun and pool party? And come to think of it, doesn’t high school bring more teachers and more books? Maybe this whole growing up thing isn’t such a good idea after all. Actually, being a kid is pretty darn fun! Surely Charlie Joe can figure out a way to put the brakes on growing up—and fast!

About the Author:

Tommy Greenwald--according to his wife, Cathy--has the maturity level of a thirteen-year-old, which makes him uniquely qualified to write this book. He has had the best time ever writing the Charlie Joe Jackson series, and is looking forward to his next challenge, which may involve dogs, or chocolate, or both. He is also the author of Jack Strong Takes a Stand and Katie Friedman Gives Up Texting! (And Lives to Tell About It).

Review:

Praise for the Charlie Joe Jackson series:

"Snappy, sarcastic middle-school humor lifts this overlong book, and the spot drawings and occasional very short pithy paragraphs are a pleasant surprise. No middle schooler wants to face a month at summer enrichment camp, but many will enjoy watching Charlie Joe work harder than he has ever worked before to avoid it." ―Kirkus Reviews on Charlie Joe Jackson's Guide to Extra Credit

"Reluctant readers . . . are the target audience here. Will they like the book? Well, there’s lots to be said for short chapters and a hero who’s on their side. Pictures don’t hurt matters much either. Greenwald could have turned this into a preachy tract, saying something about how assigned reading in schools sucks the fun out of books and turns legions of children into non-readers every year. . . . [I]nstead his non-reader comes by his non-reading honestly. Like a lot of kids, he just never took to it. All in all it’s a great little book . . . . This is definitely the book to hand those The Strange Case of Origami Yoda fans out there who are looking for more, and it’ll probably satisfy non-non-readers as well." ―School Library Journal on Charlie Joe Jackson's Guide to Not Reading

"[S]lackers everywhere have a new, likable hero in Charlie Joe Jackson."Kirkus Reviews on Charlie Joe Jackson's Guide to Not Reading
